Directions

  1. Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir fresh tomatoes, onion, and garlic in the hot oil until onion is tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir canned tomatoes and tomato paste into the tomato-onion mixture, breaking down the whole tomatoes with a fork. Mix basil, salt, and pepper into the tomato mixture; simmer until liquid has slightly reduced, 15 minutes.
  2. Stir vodka into the tomato mixture; simmer vodka sauce until slightly reduced, 15 minutes. Stir cream into vodka sauce and cook until heated through, 15 minutes.
  3. Bring a large pot with lightly salted water and 1/2 teaspoon olive oil to a boil. Cook pasta, stirring occasionally, at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 10 minutes; drain. Fold pasta into vodka sauce to coat.

This was so easy to make and it tasted GREAT! I can't wait to make it again; my family LOVED it. Th only problem was that I didn't make enough :)

I followed this recipe (almost) to the letter. It's EXCELLENT as written! Don't be afraid of the amounts of onion & garlic, the flavors all work together so well, nothing overpowers anything else, imho. The only thing I did to "own" the dish was to use 1/4c Sriracha vodka and 1/4c plain vodka. I also only had a half-pint heavy cream, so mixed it with 2% milk... it had no deleterious effect on the final product. Simple. Delicious. My favorite kind of dinner.
